Introduction to Social Equity Audit PDF Print E-mail

Social Equity - To be just and Inclusive: the only difficulty is that this is easier said than done, especially in a world where exclusion is the norm. It runs rife in everyone’s daily life and we take on the role of perpetrators or victims as the situation commands. In a society that is deeply hierarchical, it is not surprising that people tend to form exclusive groups at every level possible- based on caste, class, education, language, ethnicity, etc.  This book is an attempt at helping us identify and understand exclusions in our professional work. This book contains a framework and set of tools that help to hold a mirror up to us to show forms and levels of exclusion that might exist in the work that we do. The chapters will guide you through the context, the conceptual underpinnings and the practical steps involved in conducting a social equity audit.
